    weather bug is USUALLY great. however lately mine has not been working, it can be a pain in the butt beacuse of the popups, also it takes a while for it to be updated sometimes. i DID like it.

    I use the info from weatherchannel.com. It shows the movement of clouds and showers and it a great help in seeing the weather forecast three or four days out. I will have check out weatherbug.

    I had weatherbug installed on my computer a couple years ago. I reinstalled it a few months ago, and again had problems with computer locking up and stuff. I later had called the tech support at Dell and said they have heard of numerous reports with others having this same problem.......no more weatherbug for me.

    Be very careful with WBug. Many had trouble removing it once installed, and some say it is a form of Spyware. Just make weather.com with your zip your home page. IMO.

    I had a lot of problems with weatherbug. Mostly the program will not respond, causing the computer to lock up 3-4 times per day. I uninstalled weatherbug and now I don't have any problems. I would stay far away from it. Just my opinion.

    It sux that some of you have had problems with weatherbug. I have it on my Dell and haven't had any problem with it and don't get any pop ups. I also installed it at my full time job, on a server network type of system and everyone likes it no problems or pop ups at all.
